Cambridge Cleantech’s internationalisation Special Interest Group
The internationalisation SIG is made for support with organising overseas missions, finding out about soft landing services and keeping track of export opportunities.
The aim of the Indian focus for this SIG is to create a dynamic Indo-UK network to exchange and share knowledge, solve problems, support policy development, commercial opportunities between various stakeholders like innovators, governments, funding community and corporates in the cleantech space.
The “Indian SIG” is chaired by Karthik Durgaprasad. He is a senior economic development professional with 20 years of UK experience in business development, innovation support and start-ups. He has worked and delivered a wide range of business growth programs for local authorities and currently serves as an inward investment officer at Essex County Council.
Since 2015, Karthik has worked on various projects supporting Indo-UK opportunities in Smart Cities, Cleantech & EVs and international trade. He has participated and hosted multiple delegations between both the countries, supported UK SMEs to explore and scale up in the Indian market. Over the last 6 years he has developed strong working relations with the FCDO, DIT, Indian government, civil servants, and industry contacts. Having graduated in India, Karthik understands the business culture, practices and can fluently speak in both Hindi and Tamil.
